Shooting through crystals and other objects adds something truly magical to a photograph! Being able to do this hands-free with the control of the
When I saw a friend's images taken with Lensbaby I fell in love - I knew I HAD to have one. I started out with a
After my first shot, all trepidation left and my confidence grew. Twisting and turning and moving the wands can dramatically change the mood of an image. The wands move so perfectly and stay put like glue. Let's talk about the wands for a quick minute - the seahorse is incredible. I get lovely bubbly effects and light coming into my images while also being able to fracture an image and create beautiful rainbows of color. By far my favourite use of this wand is the diffraction to the bokeh. The rainbow film allows me to add in more color and streak it exactly where I want it - every time. The ability to do this without having to be perfectly positioned with the sun is mindblowing. A cloudy overcast day makes beautiful rainbow leaks, night time makes beautiful rainbow leaks, full sun or shade makes beautiful rainbow leaks - you get the idea. The stretch wand I'm still playing with but its a tonne of fun! Streaky diffraction, yummy liney bokeh, the list goes on.
But by far my fav thing about the OMNI is the ability to trick the sensor in the camera and bring more light into my images without blowing anything out. It's official, the OMNI is not leaving my 85mm and will be a staple at EVERY session I do in the future. Lensbaby and the OMNI have my heart forever and I look forward to creating more unique, fun, and artistic images.
